Jerry’s Nutrition Day

July is Nutrition Month in the Philippines and Jerry’s school had a special family event to educate kids (and parents) on the long-term health benefits of diet and exercise.

I’m blogging it because it is the first thing I have attended really as Jerry’s ‘parent’ and I shortened my trip in Australia so I could go. This blog is also intended as my own personal photo album that hopefully Jerry will want to look over when he is older.

I really did enjoy the day even assembling at 5.30am for a family walk through the streets in our Nutrition Day t-shirts and the sharing of fruits and native foods in his classroom afterwards with the other nanays (mothers) and his teacher.

I can honestly say I feel compelled to ensure Jerry eats more fruit and vegetables after being there.
